Protecting your mission against increasing storms, tides, and sea level rise.
Flooding has been shown to be the greatest single cause of property damage historically. These days, assets, buildings, and communities are designed and insured with historical data of weather patterns, extreme rain, sea level, and flooding in mind.
Unfortunately, these existing designs might not be enough to mitigate the risk of flooding for coastal properties. Although it was once seen as an extreme weather event, flooding has now become a common and frequent occurrence.
While increased flooding is versatile and remains an ongoing threat to the global system, progress has been slow in adequately preparing schools, businesses, communities, and government agencies for the effect it will have on their security, mission, and operations. An uptick in storms, tides, and sea level rise establishes a new baseline from which flooding can be calculated. The impact of these events should be determined through scenario-based modeling and a comprehensive risk assessment.
To accomplish this, our team partnered with the leading expert on sea level rise, John Englander, to provide clients with scientific models and long-term solutions.
“In this new era of extreme rains, runoff, storms, and record sea level, a new kind of planning is warranted.”
